    From the APBA Power boat races in Hampton VA last Saturday.

    All shot with the D300 and Sigma 100-300 f4.0. Most with the Sigma 1.4X EX DG TC. I really like this combination.

    Nice work. Love Pic #1. I've never seen that style of boat racing before but it looks crazy fast. Your series convey the power and speed of these boats very well.........

    Cheers

    Thank you Ted. I learned those boats are called Jersey Skiffs. And you're right, they are really wild on the water. They also provided the best racing of the day.

    Thanks for looking and commenting.
